Sky dedicates a channel to Ryder Cup Golf

Sky is to turn one of its sports channels to a golfing channel this autumn, when Sky Sports 4 becomes Sky Sports Ryder Cup.

The channel will offer two weeks of non-stop golf including exclusively live coverage of the Cup.

Sky Sports Ryder Cup will, according to Sky, show over 330 hours of golf across 14 days, including 36 hours of live coverage from Gleneagles. The channel goes live at 6am on Thursday 18 September and continues until 6am on Thursday 2nd October.

Sky's temporary rebranding of Sky Sports 4 follows last years temporary rebrand of Sky Sports 2 during the Ashes cricket and Sky's increasing drive to assign coverage of individual sports to a particular Sky Sports channel.

Sky Sports Ryder Cup will be available on all major pay TV platforms, except BT TV. NOW TV users will be able to access the channel via the Sky Sports day pass.
